The Fourth Wall

The Fourth Wall
Lyrics written by Robert M. Duvall

There is a feeling
That somethings not right.
Like eyes are watching
Both day and night.

Trapped in a prison
Of our own design.
Living our lives
One scene at a time.

On stage for the watcher’s to cheer.
The fourth wall there’s nothing to fear.
The looking glass, or a mirror to me?
The fourth wall for all to see.

Now there’s a sense that this life isn’t real
The watcher’s eyes that are trying to steal
We play the part in a story to tell
Is this a role or a living hell?

You only see what they want you to be
The puppets dance, the strings you can’t see
Trapped in the scenes from a memory
If you believe then you’ll never be free.

On stage for the watcher’s to cheer.
The fourth wall there’s nothing to fear.
The looking glass, or a mirror to me?
The fourth wall for all to see.
